I have been trying to add words and teasers on my images to make them more (MFP) suitable for Pinterest - hoping to get some clicks.
These images are being cropped on my profile page, so that some of the letters are cut off. Is there a way for the profile page to show the full image so the words show there? It looks strange and unprofessional. Although I have not noticed this happening, I am also worried that sometimes a cropped word might turn into another word that I do not mean.
I went and looked at your profile page. The only ones I saw getting cropped are the Amistad and Asthma ones in your Spotlight section. I have yet to discover a way to adjust profile or photo settings, so the only suggestion I can make is to make sure you leave a large enough "bleed area" (border) around the outside of the photo that you won't lose the lettering if your photo gets cropped.
Personally, I've started to crop my photos all to the same size (4x6) so they're uniform when displaying and I leave a wide border area where I make sure not to put any wording. Then, I keep the size of the file 1 MB or less. So far, it's worked great. I've yet to see any of my photos get cropped. Hope that helps!
You're right, Rosa, it is just the spotlight images that are being cropped. It is difficult to find a good place to put the words where they can be read without having to worry about the bleed area. If you look at the Amistad Rebellion, (the regular hub is in the second row down) the "n" in rebellion is pretty far away from the border. It is a big bleed area.
The spotlight image on profiles works best with 200x150 images.
We have to do some sort of cropping on some images to make them fit here.
You may want to change the first two images for these Hubs to 200x150 and see if that has the effect you would like.
As @Rosa mentioned, a bleed area for text could also help.
A strong images without text might also work better for all the different sizes of the images (thumbnail, spotlight image, pinterest, etc.)

I just came on my profile page and the new design is terrible. There's a lot of empty space and the articles are not on it, you have to click articles. The profile page is boring and lacks relevant information. I don't care about accolades because they are meaningless. This is a disservice to the...

How do I change the order of HUBS in my profile?For instance, I would like to have all my Hubs show up from oldest to most recent.

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs is less than 50% of the number of published hubs. My understanding of why...

This is different from another question from a writer who was referring to the bios that are customized to different articles. I'm just trying to add a bio to my Profile Page, and get it to STAY. By going to "Edit Profile" I'm able to write my bio in the appropriate box, then hit...
